About the Author

Lettie Teague is an executive editor at Food & Wine magazine. She writes a monthly column for the magazine, "Wine Matters," for which she won the 2003 James Beard M. F. K. Fisher Distinguished Writing Award. She is also the illustrator and coauthor of Fear of Wine.


"Lettie Teague is a true original -- witty, articulate, and in love with wine as well as fascinating people. Her debut book will enthrall, charm, and educate both wine connoisseurs and neophytes. In short, it is a brilliant and captivating read from one of America's most gifted commentators on all things about wine."

-- Robert M. Parker Jr., founder, The Wine Advocate
"I enjoyed the opportunity to learn, even after thirty years as a winemaker, new facts and approaches to wine, as well as to enjoy the camaraderie of two professionals, both passionate and knowledgeable and at the top of their respective fields. I would recommend this book to the wine novice as well as the wine lover."

-- Ed Sbragia, wine master, Beringer Wines, and owner/wine master, Sbragia Family Wines
"We applaud the entertaining new wine book 'Educating Peter.' [...] Studded with Hollywood names and factoids (director Martin Scorsese's favorite wine is Chianti), the book teaches the basics, from how wine is made, served and tasted to characteristics of wines from the Old World (Europe) and the New World (most of the rest of the globe). It's a hook that's ideal for young wine lovers and movie buffs who find wine encyclopedias off-putting, given not only Rolling Stone's mostly under-30 demographics but also the number of film-world luminaries involved in wine." (April 11) -- The Washington Post, Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg
"If Nora Ephron were a wine journalist, her work would read like that of Lettie Teague." (March 14) -- The New York Sun, Peter Hellman
"Like a boozy Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle, or maybe the Professor and Gilligan, these two rack up dozens of hours together in the pursuit of knowledge. [...] If this doesn't sound like other beginner wine books, that's because it's not. [...] The pace is never plodding, and you don't feel like you're a fourth-grader reading 'Dick and Jane.'" (May 4) -- Daily News, Rachel Wharton
